45 YEARS OF
ENGINEERING EXCELLENCE

Saubatech’s roots go back more than 6 decades to when a South African group of technicians and engineers with experience in manufacturing steam and mining equipment founded Safurnco (Pty) Ltd in 1957 and began to produce quality engineering equipment.

By the 1970s the enterprise was partnering with reputable manufacturers like Macroburn Incinerators, Peabody Combustion Equipment and Marine & Industrial Oil Heaters. It went on to establish its market position as a mature, well-balanced company renowned for quality products, international compliance standards and excellent service.

Today Saubatech supplies a full range of incineration solutions for cremation and waste removal to an international client base. Our units can be found in 37 countries, including an extensive footprint in Africa.

We enjoy long-term partnerships with reputable companies in the industry, including Macrotech, Duraflame and C & S Marketing in South Africa, and Lintern, Consort and Glosfume Ltd in the UK.

“Together with Macrotech, we established the Macroburn brand,
and we continue to partner with Macrotech
on the manufacture of our top selling thermal technology units.”
